More commentary on the Democrats’

More commentary on the Democrats’ swerve to the left, this time from the Washington Post. Here is the Post’s take on events: “A decade after Bill Clinton pushed his party toward the center of American politics, inspiring a vibrant movement of ‘New Democrat’ followers in Congress, a liberal resurgence is sweeping the party, threatening to brush centrists to the side.” Pinch me, I think I’m dreaming. Revisionist history: the problem with McGovern and Dukakis is that they just weren’t quite liberal enough; same with Gephardt and Daschle. The most interesting thing about the article is the tone taken by the Post–definitely critical of the leftward trend, and giving more than equal time to “centrist” critics.
